Ate here a couple of times. Good pure veg Indian! Proper spicy too, not the Western-style, bland mush served by the nearby Continental-Indian-Mexican-Thai-Whatever restaurants.

100% vegetarian and authentic North Indian food with a lot of options on the menu. Really quick service, we got our food in about 5 minutes after we ordered and we suspected that it was prepared beforehand, but maybe they just have a really fast kitchen crew. It tasted really good though! Especially the curries which were spicy, and the... More

The restaurant is located the junction of Middle Path Street and Baidam Road. We had our dinner here and ordered north indian dishes which were tasty. The staff were friendly and efficient. But we found the restaurant a bit pricey and started frequenting the Marwadi Restaurant on Lakeside Road.

Really Great and cheap Indian Food!!! If it's crowded the drawback is, that it can take a Long Time until the Food is ready.

This is an veggitrian restaurant, however regardless of whether your a vegetarian or not the food is excellent and worth a visit. Great selection and helpful advice made this a favourite of ours. They will also vary the dishes to suit you. Good location and good budget value. Cold beer to cool you down (good selection)

I thought it would be great food as Punjabi's can be quite passionate about cooking. It was just average. A lot of better options in town.

We spend 3 days in Pokhara and 3 meals in this restaurant. Food was excellent. We are not vegetarian but this 4 weeks we didn't eat meat at all. Here also we were trying only vegetarian food. Paneer, kofta, raita, naan, etc. All delicious!The service is could be better but they were very nice. Wifi is function well.
